red rock country

In the early morning light, Cliffs in the red rock country (loosely referred to Colorado Plateau region centered around the Four Corners where the states of Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico meet) radiate a rich red glow, and a sculptured panorama of sandstone is revealed in a rich palette of crimson, vermillion, orange, salmon, peach, pink, gold, yellow and white.
